This year, you can buy your plants online and pick them up at the gardens!

Things are different this year for a lot of us, and the Denver Botanic Gardens are no different. As we approach the garden's much-anticipated spring plant sale, many have been worried that it will be canceled. But, the gardens assures us that's not the case.

This year, the sale will go online! You can now shop online for your favorite plants, and then pick up your orders from May 6-9.

How It Works

Presale, April 27: Anyone, members and nonmembers, can buy tickets for the pre-sale through April 24. Tickets are going fast, so you'll have to get them as soon as possible. Tickets for the presale cost $25.

Member and Volunteer Shopping, April 28-May 1: These dates are open to members and volunteers only. In order to purchase plant sale items, your membership must be active and current as of April 28, 2020, with an expiration date April 30, 2020, or later.

Pick-Up, May 6-9: Timed order pick-up will take place on May 6-9 on the top deck of the parking structure. Denver Botanic Gardens staff will load purchases on the top deck of the parking structure to encourage social distancing.

"For everyone’s safety, we ask that if you are feeling ill or symptomatic that you please send someone else to pick up your order on your behalf," the gardens request.
